Text Box:

Build a base in a modified right angle weave, then add a second embellishment layer for a rich, supple collar. The double layer technique gives a luxurious dimensional look that is more stable than single layer right angle weave, yet still flexible. Use of different size Japanese seed beads creates graceful arches with sparkling crystals dangling from the points.

Full color step-by-step instructions are provided for the design pictured above along with a few suggestions for variations. Additional inspiration pieces will be shown and discussed in class.

How difficult is it?

Some bead weaving experience is needed for this design. You should be comfortable with using small Japanese seed beads, and should be able to maintain a consistent tension with needle and beading thread. This is basically an embellished right angle weave technique.
